Pericom PI3USB102G USB 2.0 high-speed switch with 5V protection is designed as a single differential channel 2:1 multiplexer/demultiplexer USB 2.0 switch. PI3USB102G features industry-leading advantages including a propagation delay of 250ps, which results from its low channel resistance and I/O capacitance. The PI3USB102G is a bidirectional switch and offers very little attenuation of high-speed signals. The device provides low bit-to-bit skew, high channel-to-channel noise isolation, and is compatible with various standards such as High Speed USB 2.0 (480Mb/s). Per the USB 2.0 specification, PI3USB102G offers overvoltage protection for the Y+/Y- pin. With the chip powered on or off if Y+/Y- pins are shorted to VBUS (5V +/- 5%), M+/M- and D+/D- outputs are clamped to provide voltage protection for downstream devices. The design makes the Pericom PI3USB102G USB 2.0 High-Speed Switch well-suited for routing signals for USB 2.0, PC, notebooks, and hand-held devices.
